Mass Firings! Benefit Cuts! Why Is Dr. Phil Going Through Behind-The-Scenes Bedlam When It's The No. 1 Talk Show On TV?!
Dr. Phil is currently the No. 1 syndicated talk show in America, but solid ratings don't always translate to a lot of good going on behind the scenes.
We're hearing that the CBS Television Distribution series is undergoing a ton of issues with its crew at the moment, and there's even talk of a mutiny arising!
Apparently, the people in charge of the show have been quite cold to their staff this season — and have been trying to pinch pennies without thinking about the consequences.
The first problem reportedly occurred immediately after production returned from its Summer hiatus in September — when the entire Transcription Department was fired with zero warning!
But those weren't the only lay offs — we're hearing
Buffy's Nicholas Brendon Responds To Walking Off Dr. Phil — See His Words About Being Molested As A Child & Being Blindsided On The Show!
Talk about a tough time.
Nicholas Brendon, former star of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, has had quite a few problems with drugs, alcohol, and arrests in the past.
However, his appearance didn't quite go as planned as he ended up walking off of the show which aired yesterday. The Buffy star was very unhappy with his treatment during the taping of the show and stormed off after Dr. Phil questioned him about his current sobriety.
Brendon was particularly unhappy with the way he claims Dr. Phil talked about his mother specifically speaking on how she didn't put Brendon in therapy after he was sexually abused as a kid.
Since the show aired, the actor took to Facebook to explain his reasoning and give insight into his frustration. In a lengthy explanation he posted:
Nicholas Brendon's highly anticipated Dr. Phil interview aired today, and gave a glimpse into just how troubled the former Buffy The Vampire Slayer actor is.
Nicholas, who had been arrested five times in eight months, reached out to the talk show host.
Trouble began BEFORE the interview, which was taped three weeks ago. The night before the show, the 44-year-old got into a violent fight with his girlfriend Emelia at the hotel they were staying at.
Nicholas did show up for the taping, saying his motivation for being there was to be a face for people struggling addiction and depression. But when Dr. Phil brought up his behavior from the previous night, he stormed off the stage.
He never returned, saying off set that the show was "not for me."
Ch-ch-check out the disturbing clip (above)!
We just hope that Nicholas gets the help that he needs.
Wow. It's hard to believe it's been 14 years since that fateful day in New York City.
Although many hardworking men, women, and children tragically passed too soon, we still celebrate their lives every year — and we're not alone.
Many of Hollywood's biggest stars have taken to social media, posting touching tributes in remembrance of September 11, 2001.
Bill Cosby Accusers Are Appearing On Dr. Phil Thursday — Get Your First Look At The Emotional Interview
This is so sad.
Model Chloe Goins and four other women who claim to have been sexually assaulted by Bill Cosby are appearing Thursday on Dr. Phil with host Dr. Phil McGraw to discuss their stories of being drugged and assaulted.
Now, we've seen the first teaser clip of the episode (above), and we have a better understanding of exactly what might take place on air.
Goins speaks to Dr. Phil in the teaser, saying:
"It's been really hard, especially with coming out publicly. Unfortunately, with these types of cases the victim gets really scrutinized and dug into. My life has been completely dug into by people, and it's been a tough road."
She also relays how upset she is about Cosby's behavior:
"It makes me upset every time I think about it. It was a disgusting thing that happened to me, that happened to these other women, and I'll never be able to fully grasp that or get over that."
Cosby, of course, has been accused of drugging and sexually assaulting more than 40 women, all of whom have come forward recently to reveal disgusting past alleged behavior by the comedian.
Cosby is scheduled to testify in a deposition on October 9.
Dr. Phil's talk show has basically become a platform for him to hold interventions for stars in need this year, and it seems like he just had another blowup.
Apparently, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer actor says that he felt like Dr. Phil simply wanted ratings, and even issued a statement on his exit, saying:
Wow, this would make for one interesting episode!
On Friday, it was reported that Dr.Phil had extended a formal offer to give Josh and Jim Bob Duggar a lie detector test on his hit show.
The hard hitting doctor wants to grill the 19 Kids & Counting stars on the extent of Josh's crimes, like if there are additional victims and if the reality star has committed similar transgressions since receiving counseling.
An insider on the show revealed:
"Even though the Dr. Phil show is on hiatus, a formal offer was extended to Josh Duggar and Jim Bob, to be guests on the program. Producers want Josh and Jim Bob to take lie detector tests about the girls he molested as a teenager."
Sounds intense! Considering Phil has interviewed the parents of Casey Anthony, we're not surprised he propositioned the Duggars!
While the family has said they're not doing any interviews at this time, we won't be shocked if they eventually end up at Dr.Phil's studio.
So, do YOU think the Duggars should take a lie detector test?
